Is it sensible, to have an Futura 141-2010 and a ultrasonic 147 to each other? The difference is only 6 liters, however the chance that you will plane ealier isn't familiar with me. Can somebody say more about that? My sails are an North Warp. 11.0m2, NP-H2 9.2-7.7-6.7 and I also have an 122 Futura 2010.

Thanks for helping?

regards, Richard

When you have volume enough, it's the width that counts for early planing.
US147 <-> FU141:
93 <-> 80 or 65 <-> 50 at the tail.
The length of th FU141 is 246 compared to 240 of the US147 which facilitates a more passive way of getting on the plane, but I think the US will definitely plane earlier, go better through lulls and point better.

Tail width at one foot off (OFO) is the keyword here. With an 11.0 m2 sail, forget the Futura 141. The UltraSonic is a perfect match with such a large sail.

Conversely, the Futura 122 is spot on with your smaller 6.7-9.2 m2 sails.

Cheers !
